Captain Edward John Smith (Captain of Titanic)

Andrea Lucas's avatar Andrea Lucas

This watercolor painting was inspired by the recent Titanic exhibit in Grand Rapids. I love old photos, history and portraits so it's not surprising that I was inspired at the exhibit for my next ArtPrize entry. My goal was to capture the legendary stoic nature of Captain Edward John Smith. I chose icy blues and grays to give the painting an eerie feeling. I also intentionally left watermarks in the painting. They provide an interesting dynamic to the piece.
